In 1989 while on a business trip to Brussels, an English entrepreneur, Mark Dixon, noted the lack of office space available to travelling business people; they were often forced to work from hotels.

He identified a need for office space that was maintained, staffed, and available for companies to use on a flexible basis and went on to found his first business center in Brussels in Belgium.

In 1994 Regus entered Latin America with a center in São Paulo and in 1999 it entered Asia with its first center in Beijing.

The Company completed a successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2000.
